Guam - Residents gathered to attend mass throughout the island to celebrate the reason for the season. Deacon Jeff Barcinas says despite the struggles or challenges we've faced throughout the year, he says it's important that families come together during this time of year. "This is where parents, mothers, fathers, sons, single men, single women, married families. They all gather to celebrate," he said.
Christmas Day is observed to commemorate the birth of Jesus, the central figure of Christianity. Although it's a Christian holiday, more and more people celebrate the occasion every single year.
